Well this news from Billboard.Com should make the Scotty and Lauren fans jump for joy.
Here is what Billboard had to say: “After winning the 10th season of “American Idol” Wednesday (May 25), Scotty McCreery blasts onto Billboard’s Nielsen BDS-based Country Songs chart at No. 32 with coronation track “I Love You This Big.”
The bow marks the highest for a brand new artist’s first single since the chart converted to BDS data the week of Jan. 20, 1990.”
That is some kind of wonderful right there!
Billboard also went on to say: “McCreery isn’t the only “Idol” finalist from this season to translate four months of exposure on the series to a Country Songs appearance. Runner-up Lauren Alaina likewise bows at No. 49 with “Like My Mother Does.”
This is really spectacular news for these young artists and for Scotty in particular. Now, let’s hope both receive the proper guidance and mentoring in order to ensure their continued success in the music industry.
First rule of business? A rock-solid, no-nonsense voice instructor. Enough with the steroids already Lauren. Please. It is just a frightening way to begin your singing career.
Are you excited for Scotty and Lauren? Do you think they should be launched as a duo or do you think that, separately, they will have stellar careers?
